Soup From A Straw

Eating Beet Soup with Mushroom Ravioli

My girls LOVE soup so much they could eat it for every meal.  It doesn’t matter what vegetables are in it they will slurp it all up.  The only problem with soup: it is challenging for them to eat.  They get frustrated when the broth falls off their spoon when they attempt to take a bite.  It usually takes a few tries before they get a good bite and then the soup contents usually end up EVERYWHERE.  Recently, the girls started using a straw to drink the broth and then they use their spoon to eat the rest of the contents of the soup whether it is pasta, veggies or meat.  It has worked out well and has left their table clean.  Last night the girls had soup for dinner.  While they were eating I decided I would surf the web for a straw/ spoon combination so they don’t have to keep switching back and forth between straw and spoon.  I came across the Sip-N-Spoon Straw during my search.  It looks ideal for cereal, milkshakes, smoothies, and SOUP.  I will have to get a set for the girls.
